From the Publisher
Up-to-date field and lab procedures. Brower et al. outline the most current techniques for data gathering-including mark recapture-in order to ensure students of more accurate samples.
Simplified format. Not all students are mathematically inclined. Recognizing this, the authors include quantitative procedures only when necessary, and these are easily completed with basic knowledge of introductory algebra. The text further aids the student by defining ecological terms and developing concepts as they appear, allowing for faster understanding of important material.
Skill building techniques and activities. Unlike other lab manuals, Field and Laboratory Methods for General Ecology focuses on properly gathering raw data, explaining how to collect, record, and analyze information, with remarks on possible sources of error. This manual also provides an exercise on writing research reports, a valuable tool for those continuing in the field of science.
Expanded diversity coverage. Population growth and diversity coverage has been augmented; you will also find a more balanced discussion of plant, animal and physical elements.

I have worked in the field of ecological consulting for over 25 years. This book is indispensable for formulating surveys and monitoring as well as doing simple effective statistical tests. The formulas are well laid out and can easily be adapted to a spreadsheet. The techniques, and variations and adaptations, are well described. I would not be without this book. Don't be fooled by the date of publication. It isn't as if ecologists are replacing their field techniques.
A waste of money.
